meeting of senators john mccain and president obama. this was held at belmont university in tennessee. the questions came from undecided voters from the nashville area. tom brokaw was allowed to include questions submitted on- line. this is almost two hours. >> good evening from belmont university in nashville, tennessee. i'm tom brokaw of nbc news. and welcome to this second presidential debate, sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's debate is the only one with a townhall format. the gallup organization chose 80 uncommitted voters from the nashville area to be here with us tonight. and earlier today, each of them gave me a copy of their question for the candidates. from all of these questions -- and from tens of thousands submitted online -- i have selected a long list of excellent questions on domestic and foreign policy. neither the commission nor the candidates have seen the questions. and although we won't be able to get to all of them tonight, we should have a wide-ranging discussion one month before the election. each candidate will have two minutes to r
than watched president obama -- then senator obama and senator mccain. tonight, of course, biden will be facing off against ryan. we'll see if there's as much interest on the part of the public but certainly on the part of the campaign there is intense interest. biden has to reverse the slide of support that has occurred since president obama's lackluster performance when he faced off against mitt romney in the first debate. and ryan will be trying to make sure he doesn't go off message that he maintains a very strict discipline with respect to mitt romney's positions. ryan of course has put forth some budgetary proposals that romney has said listen, i'm the guy in charge, i'm going to be the one who will make sure that the policies that are in place will be my policies. so ryan is going to have to make sure he is in sync with romney. but all in all, you know, romney has the momentum now and we'll see how it turns out tonight. >> you talked about the strategy. we are watching the presidential debate and there weren't too many sparks flying in that debate. do you think that's goi
if obama shuts down the government in january, the democrats lose ten senate seats, ten of which are vulnerable in 20 # 14. a democratic senate and republican house encysts that obama extends the tax cuts. gerri: i'm not sure everybody is so sanguine. mitt romney's been called a liar for the ideas on taxation and taxes. he wants to cut taxes 20% across the board for everybody, the poor, the wealthy, the people in between. can you do that and get rid of breaks in the tax code for wealthy people and come out with anything like a balanced budget? >> well, two things. yes, you can bring in the same amount of revenue with tax reform, but, remember, republicans believe if you do marginal tax rates, you actually get more growth. when reagan cut tax rates, he added 10 million more people not work rolls than obama's spend more approach. put 10 million people to work, take in reagan's approach to the recession would have jobs, that's a lot of revenue coming to the government and growth as a result. yes, romney's proposal, cut marginal tax rates and reign in spending is what reagan did and
goes from 24% of gdp to 20%, to 16%. if obama wins, democratic house and senate, his budget takes spending up to 38% of t economy during that same period. a government twice as large. if you have split government, obama gets elected in a a republican house or republican house or senator, what happens is exactly wha happened two years ago which is they'll extent bush tax cuts for two years and fight it out in two years. there's not going to be a cliff. everybody knows this because if obama shuts down the government in januar theemocrats lse ten senate seats, ten of which eulnerable in 20 # 14. a democratic senate d republican house encys that obama extends the tax cuts. gerri: i'm not se everybody is sanguine. mitt romney's been called a liar for the ideas on taxation and taxes. he wants to cut taxes 20% across the board for everybody, the poor, th wealthy, the people in between. can you do that and get rid of breaks in the tax code for wealthy people and come out with anything like a balanced budget? >> well, two things. yes, you can bring in the same amount of revenue with tax fo

of what is immediately say president obama's not so good performance. >> i asked senator mccain, the numbers came out on friday and many prominent republicans and some in the republican party questioned the timing of that and questioned the labor department would put out the sympathetic numbers to the obama campaign saying unemployment had dropped in a dramatic way. i think, senate, do you fall in line with this? senator mccain said no. he believes the numbers are what they are; however, the drum beat of questioning it, will, is something the obama campaign has to answer and that is trying to put each side on the defense of saying what they thought was an advantage. >> and thank you for checking in to that. a lot of folks were talking about that and he does not pull punches. i think he got a good answer from him. thank you, tom fitzgerald. >>> our coverage includes you at home. we want to hear from you as you approach elect day. use the hash tag fox 5 d.c. you decide and tweet your thoughts about the candidate, issues, the election and more as we countdown to november. >>> a

numbers are factored in there, though. obama campaign surrogate, senator dick durbin, thanks for being with us. >> sure. good to be with you. >> appreciate that. the headline is did obama just throw the entire election away? and it gets worse from there. tell me a little bit about if you think, in fact, that this polling you're seeing -- the polling is literally due to what happened that night in the debate. >> we always said it would be a close election. i believe it will be. disappointed, of course, with the debate. believe the president understands his challenge now. he was shocked and surprised. many of us were. mitt romney came on that set at the first debate and said things which completely contradicted what he said in the campaign befo before. i think it caught the prz a little bit by surprise. he won't be surprised again. >> you cannot tell me that his poor debate performance was he was sitting there, stunned in front of the american public as opposed to presenting his side of the argument. people have talked a little bit about the air, pressure from the high altitude. >> high

the white house will get the senate. that is today we would say that they were his president obama and today you say democrats are likely to keep the senate. if governor romney, it's a very narrow path when you look state-by-state. if governor romney wins the presidency that will mean there is a wave behind him, that there is some lift to him and that will bring in a couple of the senate candidates enough to put them over. >> chris? >> well just so you understand charlie cook has forgot more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible and one of the reasons people beforehand, a year ago, six months ago thought that the republicans weren't so sure as he pointed out 2006 was the way the election and democrats won in a lot of places like montana that you would expect them to win so as they went in and correct me if i'm wrong, visit democrats were defending 23 seats in the republicans only 10. just by the nature of the mathematics it seems likely the republicans would pick up seats in the democrats would look 23-10 but right now the conventional wisdom in the charlie cook wisdom is
back in a 2008. about 61% of those under the age of 30 supporting senator obama in 2008. only 39 percent for john mccain. it increased under post- graduate. a little different among high- school graduates, because the president getting only 47 percent, john mccain with 53 percent. what will we see in 2012? guest: keitel brought up the party line that mitt romney is advocating for. brought up the party line. on the issue of turnout to vote. 66% voted for obama. two or three weeks ago there was a poll released, and in the poll, 18-29 year old age bracket is 45% 4 mitt romney. the first time a republican has broken the 40 ce% bracket for youth. governor romney has the experience to create jobs. the 18-29 year olds are either coming nearing graduation and wanting jobs or are suffering in the obama economy. i think you will see a turnaround -- turnout in the polls and will favor for mitt romney. host: we have been focusing on key sectors of the electorate. we will get back to your calls in just a moment. what shape your ideology? why are you a democrat and why you support president ob

president obama. >> but a fellow republican, senator rand paul, tells cnn that romney's approach is wrong, that more u.s. intervention in the mideast would not be effective, that our wars have fared poorly. in your opinion, what is the role of the u.s. in this region? >> first of all, we have to determine, is this region important to us? and the answer definitely is yes. because of our allies in the region from nato ally turkey which is under fire right now from syria to israel that's constantly being threatened to our gulf allies. secondly, energy. thirdly, this is the transportation and geographic hub of eurasia. fourthly, it's the cradle of civilizations in religions, it's part of our heritage. we can't walk away from the middle east, but it's a very tough, it's a very dangerous and it's a very turbulent region. and we take risks in being out there. >> former u.s. ambassador to iraq and turkey, jim jeffrey, thank you. >> thank you. >>> tens of thousands may have been given the contaminated steroid injections that are blamed for a deadly meningitis outbreak, but some say they saw it com
at some of the senate races, particularly in democratic leaning states like massachusetts and connecticut. president obama being on the ballot will significantly help elizabeth warren and congressman murphy there. when you look at the house, though, the democrats would need to win 25 seats in order to regain it. that number i would actually equate to about 35 due to redistricting and different types of retirement and that number is very difficult. the one way in which you would have seen any movement there is perhaps this was a wave election but all the data indicates it's not, more of a turn out the base, fight over independent election like you saw in 2004. even had mitt romney -- one scenario i've talked about with republicans today, had mitt romney not done well at the debate last week and folks had seen the writing on the wall that perhaps this candidacy was doomed they would have done a bob dole 1996 strategy and doubled down on races in the house and senate and put resources there. romney on the uptick they won't do that. they think there's going to be a lot of enthusiasm for their
senator portman watching in a hotel suite tonight. president obama was in the air on air force one for part of this tonight. how does this change prep for tuesday? >> well, i think we'll see certainly a more aggressive president obama. i think the interesting thing about it, we all kind of agree that this was probably a draw, which just draws attention to the fact of how rare it was last week when you had such a lopsided victory that everyone saw almost immediately and the president himself had to finally acknowledge. and then the question is if you have a draw, then who really wins ultimately? and you could say the republicans do because they're the ones who came in with momentum. but vice president biden was out there to stir up the base, to fire up the base. and if that was his objective tonight, he probably accomplished that. >> and tom brokaw, one of the elephants in the room, of course, is the business of moderating. a lot of talk about the job jim lehrer did. i think it will be mutually agreed that martha raddatz did a good job tonight and moved that conversation along. >> s
becoming much more crucial. what did it do for the race between romney and obama? >> i think -- first of all, i think each guy did what they had to do. paul ryan, this is his first big national moment. he was 2 years old when biden became a u.s. senator. biden has had a lifetime to be a national figure. last night in 90 minutes, paul ryan, much more than just the nomination, he began somebody -- your own poll showed people thought he was knowledgeable, competent, capable. so ryan is doing better. biden was quintessentially biden. in 2008 in his famous debate with palin, he says come with me to restaurant in wimgton wilmington. it had been closed 20 years earlier. biden was so wrong on benghazi last night it will haunt them till the next debate. >> ryan accused biden, said it took the president two weeks to acknowledge this was a terrorist attack. the president did say right after the attack that it was an act of terror. and then biden said we weren't told they wanted more security there. we did not know they wanted more security. as jan pointed out, we've had house

of the senate. and it was at 80 for a long time, eamon, things went sour. and it's -- at the same time, with president obama's improving chances, this went the opposite way. >> yeah, what's interesting here, the conventional wisdom people expect a status quo election. they expect the democrats will maintain the senate. they expect that republicans will maintain the house. but it's tightening and that could go in any direction. >> did you mention ohio? >> i did not. >> that's tightened up too. >> last i saw was five points. >> and watch -- >> ten previous. >> and watch what's going on at the presidential level. because that is important even though these aren't battleground states. i looked up the spread yesterday. if you look at the 2008 election, mid-september is where obama started to really separate from john mccain. and the graph just goes away. he starts running away with it right in mid-september. the graph this year if you look at the daily tracking polls goes the exact opposite way for obama. he was -- he had a pretty wide separation with romney and now it's completely convergi
down and that does help republicans down the ballot, it means they will pick up senate seats, and they're not going to lose as many house seats as maybe they worried about predebate. >> giving the obama campaign or the inability to let the debate go in terms of the dialogue, what do you hear about the cold hand of fear grabbing chicago? >> well, it is. and it's funny, look, whenever there's a bad moment in a campaign, then suddenly fingers begin pointing, so then there is what's going on with debate prep, how come that didn't go well, that's just naturally someone that was part of it not wanting to take full blame. so there it's a little bit of that. i think you're going to see internally that nothing's changed. but i'm hearing chatter that maybe some people from the last debate are going to at least get involved in the debate prep process. he will bring in some of these sharpest communicators to do that. >> and of course as i said to my friends in the obama administration, every administration as many seasons, every campaign has many seasons, last week, a lot of people were saying thi
the energy that president obama was missing last week. republicans i'm talking to here in this spin room contend he was unhinged. i just heard senator ron johnson of wisconsin describe him as incredibly rude. but there is no question that in that exchange that you just played and others, congressman ryan may have started out making good points, but he often didn't get to the end of them because vice president biden interrupted him. >> pelley: jan crawford is covering the romney campaign for us. and she's there in kentucky as well. jan. >> reporter: well, scott, one thing that i think is so interesting about this debate tonight was that paul ryan was considered this man of substance. he was the numbers guy, the policy whiz, someone who could take out these powerpoint presentations and deliver them for an hour before voters in some small town in wisconsin and instead this was very much a debate that is going to be discussed on issues of style and that clip you showed really demonstrates that. those are substantive issues. they were trying to discuss. and look at biden interrupting paul rya
